Cahill set for Barclays Premier League exit

Australian moving to New York Red Bulls after eight years at Goodison Park

Tim Cahill scored 56 Barclays Premier League goals in eight years at Everton

Everton's Tim Cahill is to leave the Barclays Premier League after agreeing a deal with the New York Red Bulls.

The Australia international moved to Goodison Park from Millwall in 2004 and scored 56 League goals in his eight seasons with the Toffees.

Playing as an attacking midfielder or striker, the 32-year-old became a mainstay under David Moyes, making 226 Barclays Premier League appearances.

His aerial ability was notable given his 5ft 10in stature, and he scored a high proportion of his goals with his head.

Cahill is moving to the Red Bulls for a nominal fee, subject to agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.

He made history in the 2006 World Cup in Germany, becoming the first Australian to score at the tournament in a 3-1 win over Japan.

He is also involved with a series of coaching clinics in his homeland, as he aims to develop the next generation of Australian stars.

He has won 55 international caps, scoring 24 times.
